2021 GALA Sponsor Spotlight

Thank you to all our 2021 Road to Independence Gala sponsors! We are privileged that some have chosen to share why they’ve chosen to support NVFS and the impact they have achieved through this partnership.


Through both dollar and deed, Clark Construction is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. For over 15 years, Clark has proudly partnered with Northern Virginia Family Service through the Road to Independence Gala to help families and individuals thrive in the northern Virginia area.

From making no-sew blankets for the Head Start centers to sorting donations at the Thrift Shops, our teams volunteer with NVFS during our annual Week of Service and beyond. “The passion, expertise, and shared sense of purpose demonstrated by NVFS’ leadership, staff, and my fellow board members is inspiring,” said Kris Manning, senior vice president at Clark Construction and NVFS board member. “Thanks to the generous support of the community, we are able to assist our neighbors in need at every stage of their lives.”

The impact that NVFS makes on the northern Virginia area is immeasurable. We are proud to support such a dynamic and vital organization in its continued efforts to empower more than 35,000 northern Virginians to achieve self-sufficiency.
